Diagnostic instrument

A set of systematic procedures used to diagnose conditions like autism, for which no medical test can be applied. Diagnostic instruments involve questionnaires, observations of the person and interviews with the family (where possible). The instruments are designed such that the diagnostic criteria are applied in a standard consistent way.
